The Curator Wine Co was established in 2012 and is located on the western side of Barossa Valley, in the sub-region of Marananga. Curator Wine Co wines are hand harvested, wild fermented, and basket pressed into French oak from selected Cooperages. Applying traditional winemaking techniques, these wines are made in minimalistic style without fining or filtration creating dark, flavoursome and juicy wines with a smooth balanced finish.
Parishes is a blend of Shiraz from different sub region or “Parishes” vineyards that they grow and buy grapes from across the Barossa Valley. Predominantly from our Marananga vineyard front block of Shiraz (two different clones) along with some barrels of Shiraz from vineyards in Stone Well, Vine Vale (on the Barossa Valley Floor), Greenock and Hallet Valley.
Big, meaty, earthy Barossa shiraz of real concentration and depth. It’s not a simple fruit-bomb, weaving together dark chocolate, liqueur cherry and sweet spice characters into a seamless, full-bodied wine of generous proportions Oak is well integrated, ripe tannins finely-measured. And the finish is long and satisfying. Drink: 2020 to 2030; Price: $35.00; Alcohol: 15%; Rating: 94 Points; Ralph Kyte-Powell; The Real Review
Beautifully ripe and inviting, the fragrant bouquet shows blackberry, mulberry, vanillin oak and cake spice aromas, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that’s plump and flavoursome. The wine offers beautifully layered mouthfeel together with velvety tannins, finishing delectable and lingering. Now to 2030. Rating: 94 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
It seems the intro wines of Curator are often the best drinking for me. Juicy, vibrant, quite lush and with a sense of richness but feels frisky and juicy at the same time. Way more about pure fruit than oak overlay, this is a mouth party shiraz of vitality and ease of drinking, yet doesn’t forget to have a little chewy tannin in the mix for shape. A really charming red here. Rated: 92 Points; Mike Bennie; The Wine Front
